This theater still exists with the twinned orchestra, untouched stage and balcony. The Washington St. entrance to the main lobby was converted to a MBTA entrance for the Chinatown (formerly Essex) Station, however most of the lobby is untouched and accessible through two sets of doors on Essex Street. The MBTA owns the building, so it has not been redeveloped and most of the building’s tenants are state agencies.

The theater is essentially intact and could easily be restored because it has not suffered the water damage and vandalism other area theaters did before they were restored.
